Half Moon Plakat

Does anyone know how big a HMPK gets? Particularly a DragonScaled HMPK? And If so, do you have any pictures of how big your HMPK is?!?!

A normal betta grows to about 1.5 inch or 3 cm(from mouth to tip).
Unless your betta is a giant which grows to 3-5 inch.

IME plakats in general grow a little faster than long finned breeds, but given equal care they end up at about the same size. that said, you're more likely to have a trace of giant genetics in plakat lines than other breeds, so some of them may grow bigger because of that.

EDIT: just thought i should throw in that all of our biggest bettas have been either plakats or VT's.

HA HA! thanks a lot buddy! Plakats are pretty hard to find without any good hookups and I just don't really like VTs. But many thanks for your input!

dude that's SUPER CHEAP! Even VT's cost about $2-$3, but a $1 for a Plakat, that's crazy!
